Thanks for your hard work and constructive input.
I am deeply impressed by the infrastructure that volunteers have built on the island of Lesvos. It has been a very inspiring week, during which I have met fantastic people and experienced beautiful connections. I have come back full with hope and motivation to continue fighting where I live. Despite horrible political decisions, despite racist people, we will not surrender. We cannot surrender.
As for practical questions, I think it is better to get in touch with the volunteers that are already working there to better adapt to their needs (a couple of days in advance was enough in our case). Renting a car was very useful and we collaborated with Marhacar. I really admire how well they coordinate all deliveries across the island.
I am leaving lots of things out but anyway, I think the most important thing is just wanting to help... and being a bit flexible :).
